Pharmaceutical form refers to the specific presentation or physical state in which a medication or pharmaceutical product is prepared and made available for use. It encompasses the various ways in which drugs are formulated and manufactured to facilitate administration and ensure optimal therapeutic outcomes.
Pharmaceutical forms are designed to meet diverse patient needs, considering factors such as the route of administration, desired drug release profile, dosage accuracy, and patient convenience. Different forms may include tablets, capsules, liquids, injectables, powders, ointments, creams, patches, and inhalers, among others. Tablets and capsules are solid forms of medication that are swallowed orally, often accompanied by water. They are commonly used due to their ease of administration and accurate dosing. Liquids, such as syrups or suspensions, are liquid-based pharmaceutical forms that are ingested orally and are suitable for patients who have difficulty swallowing solid forms.
